Your eyeball return have a front plate that you can unscrew (counterclockwise) and remove temporarily along with eyeball. You should be able to secure sock to exposed threads with zip ties or nylon string or something like that. Another option, if you have flexible outlet hose from your filter, is to disconnect it at return fitting (make sure you plug or cover it from pool side first), secure sock to end of that hose and slung it over pool wall and rig it so it won't fall out.Since I have an eyeball return do you have any tricks for keeping a sock on there?
Tracey, I was deathly afraid of using MA. Now I feel like a pro. I use gloves, safety glasses, and the full strength MA from home depot.It certainly is. Many TFPers prefer it to the full strength stuff due to lower fumes.
